our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the

monday forecast, one more nice, beautiful day from boston down to d.c. falling temperatures in the middle of the country. the northwest is also stormy. as far as the cleanup from that nor'easter and of course our historical superstorm sandy, it looks like it's going to be pretty nice much of this week. temperatures not too cold, not too chilly for this time of year. so that will continue. there's no storms on the way for the battered east coast. a little bit of low fog there over lower manhattan. you're watching "morning joe" on this monday. we're brewed by starbucks. ♪ ♪ [ multiple sounds making melodic tune ] ♪ [ male announcer ] at northrop grumman, every innovation, every solution, comes together for a single purpose -- to make the world a safer place. that's the value of performance. northrop grumman. gives you a low national plan premium... so you can focus on what really matters. call humana at 1-800-808-4003. but some things never get old... marie callender's dutch apple pie with fresh fuji apples and a crust made from scratch... it makes home at the holidays even sweeter. m
? >> it's going to be very tight. i would hate to be sitting in boston or chicago, because it's going to be a very, very long, long day for them and a long night as well. jon: what are you going to be looking for first? >> first -- as the early states come in, indiana and kentucky i'm going to be looking from the swing from where obama was four years ago to where he is today. the first important state is going to be virginia. the problem is we'll get some smaller county in toto early but some of the bigger jurisdiction -rs going to take a longtime to come in. i'm going to be looking for the counties, prince william and loudon. i'm going to be looking for african-american turn out in petersburg in what is called the south side and i'm going to be looking to compare in the heartland and the anti-obama coal country, i'll be looking for the difference between 08 and this year for president obama and romney vs. mccain. jon: the polling seems this is a tie. from what you're saying you seem to be saying that as well. >> i think it is up for grabs. we have a lot of confusing information out.
predicting where sandy was going to go. >> think run up the atlantic coast and bring it to boston and new york and all the way down to d.c. and maybe even potential for snow to the west. other problems when this goes by, the winds come like this. what does that do? it grabs more cold air, more cold air that will bring low temperatures down into the 30s. philadelphia, seaside heights where half the houses are knocked down the first couple of rows from the ocean. below freezing, and no heat for people trying to recover. >> when do we think this is going to happen? >> it happens on wednesday afternoon. >> there could even be a piece -- a small piece coming out on monday, but the main storm looks like it approaches the northeast on wednesday. >> all right. for people who have a little bit of time to get ready for this, there is a warning that this is coming, so people have a couple of days to really hunker down and try to figure this out. thank you, chad. really appreciate it. you got one storm that is gone and another that might be coming to the east coast. still digging out. >> we just got
they had turkey chili for lunch what went on in that room? >> i was up here in boston, spoke to some romney advisers who described it as a good meeting, important meeting for both sides to do. this is an awkward looking photo. it is still very tough. the feelings if you're on the romney side of the campaign are still pretty raw. one of the things i was told romney made clear is that he doesn't want to play any part in fiscal cliff negotiations. there was some talk immediately afterwards some of his discussions or ideas on deductions, eliminating some tax deductions could be helpful, but romney made it clear he doesn't want to play a role in those talks. >> david, who would you be with this weekend on "meet the press"? >> talking to timothy geithner, talking about where the negotiations are, where the pain point is for democrats in terms of where they're willing to make cuts, that's an important question for republicans as discussions go forward. >> one of the men at the center of all of this. david gregory, thanks so much, david. >> thanks, willie. >>> let's check the day's other top storie
, that could be a problem. we're looking at wind advisories from boston to long island. >>> good morning to you. another day of near record warmth per section, if you want to get on outdoors and rock the vote. 81 in santa theresa and not all that much cooler at the coast today, 82 in santa cruz and 80 degrees in san francisco. as we head through the next few days, temperatures drop like a rock. look at the difference between today and thursday. snow levels falling as low as 3 ,500 feet. just ahead, much more from democracy plaza. surprising thing her mom did while waiting for the 2000 presidential race, but first, this is "today" on nbc. >>> it's not just about the white house. some other key races to watch today. >> after your local news. >>> the time now 7:26. good morning, everybody. i'm jon kelley. yes, it is election day and california voters have major choices to make decisions that will affect the state for years to come. one of the biggest issues on that ballot is prop 30. he has been pushing this one hard. prop 30 would raise the sales tax, as well as income taxes for the highest earne
hospitalized in boston. the 83-year-old was rushed from his prison cell to a hospital yesterday after complaining of chest pains. bulger, the man who inspired jack nicholson's character in "the departed" is awaiting trial for his role in 19 murders. >>> that is zach potter. inspiring a nation by climbing to the top of chicago's 103-story willis tower. zach lost his leg in a motorcycle accident three years ago. doctors out fitted the 31-year-old with the world's first neurocontrolled bionic leg. he used it to scale the former sears tower in just over 53 minutes. that's incredible. >>> coming up, the economy is a top issue in this election. and president obama has consistently trailed mitt romney on that issue. so what does that mean for tomorrow's election? one of the nation's top economists, larry summers, is going to join us next. harge of . how they'll live tomorrow. for more than 116 years, ameriprise financial has worked for their clients' futures. helping millions of americans retire on their terms. when they want. where they want. doing what they want. ameriprise. the strength o

romney will be in florida, and ohio and boston to watch the election . he's voting for himself . the president of the united states was in ohio, wisconsin and virginia and today in wisconsin and ohio. i tell you one thing. these guys are sprinting and blitzing to the finish. >> if you look at the crowds, the president of the united states sounds like he's losing his voice by the end of the day. and mitt romney in buckscounty, pennsylvania had 30,000. and it said it rivaled george bush's appearance back in 2004 and polls in pennsylvania look like mr. mitt romney regained the momentum that was stalled with sandy and could do well. >> gretchen: one of the things people have say . is it important to go negative or stay positive. you have done your negative advertising and more important to speak about america in general and the great nation that we are and vote patriotism or get the jabs. the president got in one word that republicans have latched on to right now. they played -- we'll play the sound bite and then mitt romney will respond. the word is "revenge". >> at the time the r
